Funny reading this again now. Seems like so long ago but it's not quite 5 months. I no longer feel like a post-op patient and with my next visit to the neurosurgeon (27 May) I'll be discharged. So, time to put this chapter behind as I don't plan to have another surgery (which is not to say it won't happen but I'm doing my best to prevent it).
On to other things to blog about. Some day.
